Guianacara sphenozona ID confirmation

Post by jessbullock » Wed May 29, 2013 8:24 pm

Hello all,
I picked a few of these guys up from a club member a little while ago and they've been spawning like crazy!
He got them at auction as G. sphenozona, just want to confirm so I don't pass off fry with the wrong ID.

Thanks!

I'd say they are G. stergiosi based on the black color on the front of the dorsal fin aswell as the shape and position of the spot.
